I have a serious weakness for Jalapenos and Cheese! It’s funny because I can totally live without cheese, even on my enchiladas..yep, it’s true. But when it comes to jalapenos, my lips require cheese. In fact, there isn’t a movie, game..or get together where I don’t provide a Jalapeno Popper of some sort.
Adding all the elements of a proper pepper popper into a Crescent Roll simply came about because I opened up the fridge and the Rolls were staring me in the face..giving me that “use me look”, you know the one! At that moment I could almost smell the flaky rolls, spicy peppers, and gooey cheese all becoming one in the oven…and here we are! When the cream cheese and cheddar melt into the Crescents, it provides the perfect balance for the spicy, soft Jalapenos! :)
What you’ll need for 8 Crescents:
4 Jalapenos..seeded & sliced
2 Cups of Shredded Cheddar
1 Cup of Shredded Mozzarella
1 Cup of Softened Cream Cheese
Cajun Seasoning for sprinkling
Unroll the Crescents and smear the inside with some Cream Cheese
Sprinkle some Cajun Seasoning onto the Cream Cheese and add a couple of slices of the Jalapeno, and a pile of the Shredded Cheddar
Bake them at 350 for about 12-15 minutes, or until they’re puffy and golden!
Serve while warm and bite into the warm, cheesy and slightly spicy, tastiest Crescent Roll ever! ~Enjoy1
